Channing Tatum is rumoured to be close to pulling out of Gambit.
A new report on The Wrap states that a source with knowledge of the situation is claiming that the deal for Tatum to play Remy LeBeau (AKA Gambit) is in danger of falling apart. Little else is currently known of the issue, though the source states that “something is up”. Fox and Tatum have yet to comment on reports.
Tatum appeared at Comic-Con, sporting a decidedly Gambit-like hairstyle, and took his place amongst the casts of the upcoming X-Men and Deadpool movies, including Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman and Michael Fassbender.
Fox have recently been screen-testing actresses to star alongside Tatum in Gambit, which is due to be released on 7 October 2016.
